When it is 104 degrees, with a heat index of 110 degrees....the last thing I want to do is cook! During this wretched summer heat, I turn to my "friend" the Crock-Pot! Here I have simply placed some chicken breast, chicken broth, and seasonings in the slow cooker.....I even placed some fresh basil on the top. (yes I am growing basil now!) The aroma from the fresh basil is amazing! I wasn't expecting that!
